Cleve Jones Speaking at Cal Berkeley

As you may have noticed, I am a graphic designer. I recently designed this flyer for human rights activist, Cleve Jones. Cleve is human rights activists and founder of the AIDS Quilt. You may have recently seem him portrayed by Emile Hirsh in the Gus Van Sant biopic, "MILK", release last year. Take this chance to listen to Harvey Milk's friend, who he mentored, and let him mentor you!


An afternoon with

CLEVE JONES, Human Rights Activist, Author
JANUARY 29, 2009
4:30 PM

Come here first hand about what it was like to work alongside HARVEY MILK. He is portrayed by actor Emile Hirsch in director Gus Van Sant's biopic MILK.

Cleve’s career as an activist began in San Francisco during the turbulent 1970s when pioneer gay rights leader Harvey Milk befriended him. He worked as a student intern in Milk’s office while studying political science at San Francisco State University.

In 1983, when AIDS was still a new and poorly understood threat, Jones co-founded the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. Jones conceived the idea of the AIDS Memorial Quilt at a candlelight memorial for Harvey Milk in 1985 and in 1987 created the first quilt panel in honor of his friend Marvin Feldman. The AIDS Memorial Quilt has grown to become the world’s largest community arts project.

Come hear Cleve Jones speak about the importance of community and public service. There will be opportunities for students to find out about intership and volunteer opportunities at local LGBT Organizations.
